Winter is the coldest season of the year in polar and temperate climates, between autumn and spring. In many regions, winter is associated with snow and freezing temperatures. Dog owners should be especially careful during this season to always keep their dogs warm and dry, no matter if they're large or small.  We bet you're asking yourself "How can I keep my dogs warm and dry when we go on walks outside?" The answer is to shop for high quality Dog Coats & Jackets at High Society Canine!  Here are three tips to help you select the right coat or jacket for your dog:

1.  Choose The Fabric:

50/50 Wool/Polyester - Waterproof Exterior Shell: The Lewis Dog Coat by Puppia is a great winter coat with a detachable hood with faux fur trimming. Decorated with toggles in the back and a plaid fleece interior. Cinch tight waist helps to adjust to your pups waist line to keep the snow out and the heat in. Made of 50/50 wool/polyester exterior and 100% polyester lining with a waterproof exterior shell. 

Polyester, Cotton Lining - Easy-To-Clean: The Jake Plaid Dog Raincoat is the perfect solution to keep pups dry and comfortable! Easy-to-clean polyester, with cotton lining. Adjustable Velcro closure tabs at neck and belly. Sturdy metal D-ring for easy leash attachment.  This awesome raincoat from Pooch Outfitters is perfect for any rainy day! 

Nylon/Sherpa - 3 Layers Protect From Bitter Cold: The Muttluks Belted Dog Coat in Red features three layers of warmth and a versatile fit. The nylon exterior with lofty inner core and faux sherpa interior will protect your dog's tender skin from bitter cold. Button closure at neck, and belted with adjustable strap and durable plastic buckle on the belly. 


2.  Choose The Size:

Every designer uses slightly different sizing for their products, so clothing should be selected according to your dog's measurements. We highly recommend that you read all specific sizing information for each item of clothing very carefully to ensure that you get the correct fit for your dog.  The sizing information is located on the product's page under the "description" tab. If your dog's measurements are in-between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the next size up.  You should also choose the next size up if your dog is overweight, or a breed with a stocky, muscular build, such as an American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Doberman Pinscher, Rottweiler, or Boxer.

In order to find the correct size of clothing for your dog, you need to take accurate measurements. Please make sure your dog is standing, get a measuring tape, and follow these easy instructions:   

You can find additional sizing information by brand on our FAQ's/Size Charts page which is located on the main menu of our store.  Feel free to contact us by phone at (971) 678-8408, or by e-mail at support@highsocietycanine.com.

3.  Choose The Style:

There are many different styles of dog coats and jackets. Well prepared dog owners should have several coats and jackets in their dog's wardrobe, to meet the requirements of the ever changing seasons.  

Winter coats have special insulation to keep your dog warm in cold or freezing temperatures. This water-resistant Zack and Zoey Quilted Thermal Dog Parka features ThermaPet technology, for the optimum protection from cold air will be great for keeping you pup warm and dry this winter. The ThermaPet uses metallized polyethylene terephthalate (MPET), the same technology used for "space blankets," to ensure ultimate warmth. 

Rain coats are made with waterproof or water resistant material to keep your dog dry in rainy, wet, windy weather. This FouFouDog Rainy Day Dog Poncho with Built-in Travel Pouch - Blue, is a lightweight, water resistant raincoat that folds into it's own pocket for convenient travel and storage. It features reflective piping detail for safety, an adjustable drawstring hood and a hook and loop fabric closure strip. 

Fashion coats are stylish, and great for special events or holidays, however, they may not be suitable for bad weather. This Annie City Dog Coat - Beige has an adorable gathered bottom and fleece lining to keep your gal good and staying warm. Lace trim around the neck with a satin bow and rhinestone button detail. D-ring for leash attachment. Touch fastener closure along belly.
